Problem sequentially joining bones

G’day

Another newby question, sorry.

I’ve got three bones on each side of a lower lip, and am trying to join them in 2.5.3.

If I join 1 to 2 in edit mode, then 2 to 3, the link between 1 and 2 is ‘lost’.

How can I sequentially join all 6 bones so they rotate as one please? Selecting all 6 and joining only joins the last two.

(BTW, I’ve tried opening the model in 2.4.9 but it won’t zoom in.)

OK, solved that, had to join in Object mode, and as an Object.
